Why it’s MCN’s pick:
Today’s entry into the Bike of the Day inappropriately named bikes category is actually nothing to do with manufacturer intentionally coming up with a silly name, they just didn’t appreciate how it was pronounced. Or could be pronounced...
Much like Toyota MR2, which when said in French sounds like a rude word for poo, when you say TDM quickly it sounds pretty close to tedium. And on a bike that some accuse of lacking a spark of excitement, that was enough for a cruel nickname to stick…
But ignore those wags, the TDM900 is a great commuter or city hack that is also a pretty fine sports tourer. Ok, the parallel twin motor isn’t the most thrilling, but this is a stonking bike that in many ways was ahead of the curve in spotting the trend for big supermoto style bike such as the Multistrada.
Now dropped from Yamaha’s range due to emissions laws, many sadly miss it and it is a popular used buy.
“Last serviced at 3263 miles, this silver TDM900 is in excellent condition and has covered just 14,936 miles and comes with all the owner’s books and spare keys.”
